Abstract: Liquefaction flow slides are recurrent phenomena in the Fraser River delta near Sand Heads. The reasons for these failures an unexplained and remained speculative. An investigation of a liquefaction flow slide that occurred in 1985 in the Fraser River near Sand Heads has been undertaken...
Abstract: Shear wave velocity (V-s) measurements were carried out in a triaxial testing program on three different cohesionless soils. The V-s was measured using bender elements during consolidation and at ultimate steady state. After consolidation the soil samples were loaded in shear under...
Abstract: The initial state of a sand, defined by the void ratio and effective mean normal stress, can be used to predict its large-strain response. Laboratory studies have shown that the shear-wave velocity of a sand is controlled primarily by the effective confining stresses and void ratio....
